Skilla Baby Claims Detroit Doesn’t Have A Consensus GOAT Rapper

Skilla Baby has build a lot of buzz in the 2020s. The rapper protege of Sada Baby has established a unique sound and delivery. He’s also vocal about being from Detroit, and repping the city’s history of legendary artists. That being said, Skilla Baby does not prescribe to the theory that Eminem is the best the city has to offer. He said as much during a recent appearance on This Is Keke Palmer podcast. He not only pushed back against the Em theory, but articulated a greater issue within Detroit hip-hop.

Skilla Baby had no claiming that Eminem does not have a stranglehold over Detroit hip-hop the way the rest of the country assumes. “I don’t know because if you think number-wise Eminem is the best Detroit rapper,” the rapper posited. “But the gag is nobody would say that in Detroit.” He conceded that he was a fan of Shady when he was younger, but notes that the rapper’s status among younger Detroit artists has faded over time. “I was an Eminem fan as a kid,” he noted. “I’m a fan of Eminem but do we consider him our best rapper? I don’t think Detroit does.”

Skilla Baby Feels That Detroit Doesn’t Have A GOAT

Keke Palmer knew that her guest was veering into controversial territory, and asked Skilla who his pick for Detroit’s best is. He didn’t named a single artist, but rather a revolving door of them. In Skilla Baby’s estimation the mantle for the city’s best is constantly changing. “Everybody had their turn being Detroit’s favorite rapper,” he theorized. “Sada Baby had his turn, Tee Grizzley had a turn, [42] Dugg had a turn, Babyface Ray had a turn.” Skilla Baby also have love to some of the younger artists who have brought attention to Detroit in recent years. Selflessly, he didn’t include himself.

“Veeze is one of Detroit’s best rappers now,” Skilla added. “Baby Smoove, Big Kizz – a lot of artists had their turn. Rocaine… Everybody had their turn being the best in the city.” The rapper claimed that the lack of a definitive GOAT Detroit rapper is a bug and not a feature, however. “What we lack is consistency,” he asserted. “Nobody’s consistently been Detroit’s best rapper.” Maybe Skilla Baby is one of the artists who can correct this perceived inconsistency.

42 Dugg Drops Debut Album “4eva Us, Neva Them”

42 Dugg Drops Debut Album "4eva Us, Neva Them"

Hip-hop star 42 Dugg has released his long-awaited debut studio album, 4eva Us, Neva Them, under CMG Records/4PF/Interscope Records. After a lengthy hiatus, the album marks Dugg’s significant return to the music scene.

“4eva Us, Neva Them” boasts an impressive roster of collaborations featuring artists like Lil Baby, Meek Mill, Sexyy Red, Jeezy, EST Gee, Rylo Rodriguez, and Blac Youngsta. This 21-track project, Dugg’s first of 2024, includes standout tracks such as “Fresh From The Feds,” “Catch 1,” “Go Again Pt 2,” and “4eva Us Freestyle,” offering listeners a deep dive into the world of the 29-year-old rapper.

Dugg dropped two singles to build anticipation ahead of the album’s release. In May, he released the anthemic “Win Wit Us” and an official music video showcasing various Detroit locations. He followed up with “N.P.O.” featuring Sexyy Red, accompanied by a Miami-based music video filled with jet skis, luxury cars, and vibrant scenes.

Earlier this year, Dugg ended his hiatus with a sold-out “Welcome Home” show at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. The event featured performances by rap heavyweights such as Yo Gotti, Lil Durk, GloRilla, Boosie, and Big Boogie. A highlight of the show was Dugg’s successful effort to reconcile hip-hop groups Doughboyz Cashout and Team Eastside, ending their longstanding East-West rivalry in Detroit.

42 Dugg & Sexyy Red Have One With “N.P.O.”

42 Dugg is inching closer and closer to dropping his first solo album in three years with 4EVA US NEVA THEM. The Detroit, Michigan native and CMG signee has one single from the project out right now called “Win Wit Us”, which dropped back in the middle of May. Overall, this track is a great indicator that the blue-collar MC is going to give this tape his all, as he sounds hungrier than ever. However, we would argue that 42 Dugg sounds just as amped on “N.P.O.”, the second offering from 4UNT.

It makes sense why the veteran is bringing a lot of energy right now. 42 Dugg was recently released from prison in October of 2023 after receiving a one-year sentence for gun possession as a felon. So, he is probably feeling the need to prove to listeners that he did not go anywhere. If that is the case, then 42 Dugg is going to have a successful album on his hands, especially with tracks like “N.P.O.” on it. This song is raunchy and unhinged, thanks to a guest appearance from nonother than Sexyy Red. From the ratchet bars to the banging and anthemic instrumental, this new pairing is 1/1 in our books.

42 Dugg Taps Sexyy Red To Deliver “N.P.O.”

unnamed 49

Detroit rap star 42 Dugg has teamed up with Sexyy Red to bring in the summer with “N.P.O.”, a bass-heavy anthem under the CMG Records/4PF/Interscope Records umbrella. Between fire verses from two of the Midwest’s finest, the hook spells it out and the video speaks for itself; “She ain’t got no panties on.”

“N.P.O.” is the latest taste of 42 Dugg’s forthcoming album 4eva Us, Neva Them, which is scheduled for an Independence Day release. On the catchy single, Dugg flexes about the finer things in life, rapping, “Chanel link with the pearls on it / I don’t care how much it cost, I said my girl want it.”

Red feeds right into Dugg’s energy, spittin’, “You ain’t got no money for me, b**** don’t even call my phone / A** phat nails done, and my weave super long.”

In the Young Chang-directed video, Dugg and Red do it up ostentatiously in Miami, showing off foreign cars and blinged out jewels from the day throughout the night, with all the women, including Red, showing why the song is called “N.P.O.”

Sexyy Red And 42 Dugg Shoot A Music Video In Front Of Miami Sunset

Sexyy Red seemingly works as hard as anyone in music. The breakthrough rap star had a massive 2023 where she released her breakthrough mixtape, an extended deluxe edition the length of an entire new album, and multiple features and remixes in between. That’s why it’s been a little surprising that she’s been quiet in 2024. Not entirely quiet as she did drop the track “Get It Sexyy.” The song is off to a great start and soon to become her most successful solo single on the charts. After making a splash debut in the top 25 the song has stuck around currently sitting at number 32 on this weeks chart.

Now Sexyy is gearing up for a forthcoming collaboration with 42 Dugg. The pair were recently filmed shooting a music video in Miami and the footage is making the rounds online. In the clip, Red’s raps about going to the club with no panties on blare while the two dance in front of an ocean. In contrast to either daytime or nighttime music videos, the shot takes place directly in front of a sunset that lights the entire sky up pink. When fans will be able to ultimately see the video in full is currently not known. Check out the video of the pair shooting their new video below.

Sexyy Red & 42 Dugg’s Music Video Shoot

Last week Sexyy Red popped up in an entirely unexpected place. She joined breakout country star Zach Bryan, who also had a massive breakout in 2023, on stage during one of his shows. She hilariously twerked to a song that doesn’t implicitly seem like anybody should be twerking to it. The bizarre crossover took off online as fans tried to speculate on how the two were possibly put in touch.

What do you think of the preview of Sexyy Red and 42 Dugg’s upcoming music video? Do you think Red will keep up her hot streak of features and hit songs dating back to last year? Let us know in the comment section below.

42 Dugg Drops Off Grim Single “Wock N Red”

If there is a rapper that embodies the city of Detroit, it is 42 Dugg. Sure, there are plenty of others, but his pit bull-like mentality in his music really drives that point home. The gravelly-voiced MC has been enjoying these last several months as a free man. He was serving a one-year sentence for failing to surrender himself in what was supposed to be a six-month bout after a 2020 federal gun investigation. One of the ways 42 Dugg has been relishing this time has been through dropping singles like “Wock N Red.”

This is now the 29-year-old’s third solo single and fourth total release following his time behind bars. That outlier is a feature appearance on a deluxe Sexyy Red track “Perfect Match,” which also saw G Herbo on it. Probably the biggest success for Dugg so far has been “SpinDatBac.” Part of the reason for that was because there a was a video that was making the rounds on social media.

Nah, what’s that drug? You turn one into two, we call it dog
Heard that young n****s still like to hoop, I like to ball

42 Dugg Triumphantly Returns to Detroit with Star-Studded ‘Welcome Home’ Concert

est gee

Detroit’s own 42 Dugg marked his triumphant return to the music scene with a spectacular “Welcome Home” concert at Little Caesars Arena on Friday (Jan. 20). The sold-out event turned into a star-studded affair, featuring electrifying performances from A-listers like Meek Mill, Yo Gotti, Lil Baby, Lil Durk, Jeezy, and more.

Notably, Dugg seized the moment to bridge gaps and foster unity within Detroit’s hip-hop community. The concert witnessed a historic reconciliation as Dugg brought together long-standing rivals, Doughboyz Cashout and Team Eastside, effectively ending the city’s East-West rivalry. The gesture aimed to promote solidarity and collaboration among local artists.

The homecoming celebration also showcased Detroit’s rich talent, with performances by Babyface Ray, Peezy, Dej Loaf, and other influential figures in the city’s hip-hop scene. The collective effort not only celebrated Dugg’s return but also emphasized the power of music to unite communities.

Dugg’s journey back to the stage follows a period of incarceration from May 2022 to October 2023. Since his release, he wasted no time returning to the studio, teaming up with Yo Gotti immediately after leaving prison.

Before his hiatus, 42 Dugg delivered the acclaimed Free Dem Boyz project, featuring collaborations with Future, Lil Durk, Fivio Foreign, Roddy Ricch, and EST Gee. The album debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200, with standout tracks like “4 Da Gang” making waves on the charts.

As the sold-out “Welcome Home” concert echoed with the cheers of Detroiters, it marked Dugg’s triumph and symbolized the resilience and unity of the city’s vibrant hip-hop community.

Sexyy Red Is Dropping A Deluxe Edition Of ‘Hood Hottest Princess’ And The Release Date Is Soon

Two weeks ago, Sexyy Red teased a forthcoming deluxe version of her Hood Hottest Princess album, which initially dropped in June. She posted an Instagram video showing the presumed deluxe album cover soundtracked by her rapping, “F*ck my baby dad.” (The St. Louis-bred rapper is pregnant.)

Luckily, we don’t have to wait much longer to get the full Hood Hottest Princess (Deluxe). In fact, that is a gross understatement. The album drops in less than 12 hours — at midnight, December 1.

Sexyy Red shared the tracklist on Instagram, which includes the aforementioned “Booty Meat (F My Baby Dad),” “Ghetto Princess” featuring Chief Keef, “Perfect Match” featuring 42 Dugg and G Herbo, “I Might” featuring Summer Walker, and “Hood Rats” featuring Sukihana.

Sexyy Red just wrapped her Hood Hottest Princess Tour, which spanned from October 16 to Wednesday night, November 29, at The Fillmore in San Francisco, California.

Most recently, Sexyy Red released the video for “Free My N***a.” At the beginning, Sexyy Red says to her pregnant belly, “Say ‘Free My Daddy,’” and we hear a manufactured baby’s voice say, “Free dada.” After that, Sexyy Red — in red lingerie — leads a protest to the gates of a prison and visits with her lover inside.

Hood Hottest Princess (Deluxe) is out on 12/1 via Open Shift.
